Lisa on Conan Last Night

This morning before 7a.m. I was up watching a tape of the Decemberists and Lisa Molinaro on Conan last night. I had never heard them. The thing that stood out from the band was a gorgeous teardrop VOX 12-string. Crikey, what a beauty. Lisa was on camera a lot, and she added tremendously to the band's cool factor and visual appeal. I didn't connect with the lead singer that much, but I felt genuinely moved watching Lisa. She brought a lot of entertainment value to that telecast.

The other great part was that the first guest was Martin Scorsese. You're in New York on a national television show and you're appearing on the same bill with Martin Scorsese? If you can explain to me why that isn't totally amazing, feel free.

Guess who was reviewed on NPR's All Things Considered this evening?

"Rock, Accessible and Arcane: The Decemberists
by Will Hermes

All Things Considered, October 4, 2006 ยท The Decemberists are a rock group from Portland, Oregon, with a strange demeanor. Their lyrics sound like they were written by an expert Scrabble player, and their songs are often period pieces that suggest odd folk tales. Their new CD, The Crane Wife, takes its title from an actual folk tale, and according to critic Will Hermes, it's as remarkable musically as it is verbally."
